Shaky ground

Isn’t a sign that you’re in the wrong place
Or that you’ve screwed up royally.
Its a signal to not look for stability
Where none is offered
Or reach for certainty
Where only choices are available.
There is a reason why
We have feet-
To move.
To change pace
To step out of one reality
Into another.
The pandemic and everything since
Has shown us how little
We can take for granted,
How our very reality
Can be derailed in just a few days;
Economies disrupted
Lives upended
Wars erupted.
Maybe the ground’s been shaking
All along,
Maybe
We were never in control,
Maybe this is how unpredictable the world
Has really been along
And we finally have to
Reckon with it.
